Certainly one of the more expensive gifts we selected, this boat by Bote, is the perfect choice for someone who has been extra good this year. From duck hunting to bass fishing and everything in between, this highly transportable boat is stored in a travel bag and fits easily in the bed of the truck. Go ahead, go big this year.

The LONO Aero 12′6″ Verge Camo Inflatable Kayak offers a unique four-chamber design for maximum versatility, so you can use it standing up or sitting down and even float the removable top chamber as an extra platform. Constructed in AeroULTRA™ military-grade PVC, it is truly unmatched in durability, performance, and portability; using composite drop-stitch fibers, which connect the top and bottom layers and when inflated to the recommended PSI. The fibers cause the air pressure to distribute evenly across the top and bottom surfaces forming a hard, stable platform. In a matter of minutes, you can transform this inflatable from something that fits in a travel bag to a fully functional watercraft. The extreme stability and full-length EVA traction pad will make you feel confident when making standing casts along with the keel guard and mounted side bite fins protecting the underside.

It has a 10:1 gear ratio for smooth, efficient pedaling as well as wide pedal foot platform with comfortable straps, a clear viewing porthole, no-touch forward and reverse, and a spring-loaded, kick-up rudder to prevent damage.
